    Why did you need to "add" WMP into Win 10 ?
    WMP is part of Win 10 operating system. You can or should be able to find it at All apps > Windows Accessories.

    My WMP plays dvd fine.

    If you cannot fix the WMP, suggest you install VLC Player.
    It's free and it's well known. It plays almost all types of file formats.

    P.S. One was first by upgrade then Clean Install, the other one was via upgrade.

    This problem is driving me nut's, hate when things don't work. Download the DVD player from app store and it plays DVD's,don't like the look of it and want my WMPlayer back. My WMPlayer just does not read the disc?, like something is missing. I know there are other apps but I kind of like WMPlayer. So any suggestion would be appreciated.
